Button Rings 





• If you want to stack your buttons, 
you can sew them together before 
attaching them to the finding. Sew 
through them once or twice and tie 
a firm knot on the underside. I used 
a mixture of vintage and new 
buttons. 




• Sew right up through all the button layers if possible, lining up the holes as you go. If you 
can't sew through the buttons, just sew the disc to the buttons by passing the needle 
through the knot on the underside. Sew them on firmly, and tie off your threads at the back 
or weave them back in under the disc to hide the ends. 

• Show off your bling! When you get bored with the buttons, you can just snip them off the 
disc, return them to your stash, and make some new rings.
